contains a lecture by lecture outline of the course. The log
provides a blow by blow account of what really happened. A
particularly useful feature of the log is that it records when
handouts were issued so you can check you have everything which has
been issued without rummaging through the CS3 pigeon hole (outside the
ITO, room 1502).

Details of the practical exercises
In the course we will use UML as the basis for the design of systems
implemented in Java. The main resources for the course are:
The book, Using
UML by Perdita Stevens and Rob Pooley. You should buy a copy.
Background readings are taken from the book,
Software Engineering (6th Edition) by Ian Sommerville. You
should have encountered most of this last year in CS2.
The primary tool we will be using is the freeware Argo/UML.
There are other UML tools in the world. You might want to look at the
advice provided by Objects by Design and
at the UML Resource Center
at Rational which is a good resource for information on UML and on the
Rational Rose design tool (used in previous years).
